@sac23 , Give me 5 minutes and I will create a new EFI for you with smbios details and WiFi and Bluetooth enabled.
X570 Master right?
I know what to do. 👍

@sac23 Check your messages, I have sent you a new EFI and left instructions on what todo.
Report back on this thread with the result.
Good Luck. :)

Delete everything that from within your Efi partition and then copy the new one in.
the partition has 100 mb available when empty and that folder is 32mb so it’s well within the limit

Copy the Whole EFI folder I sent you and paste it into the EFI partition that MacOS is installed onto. If it asks you replace the old folder with the new not merge or do what I said in the last post

Yes that is correct. That’s for a hotspot connection via Bluetooth, You don’t monitor your Bluetooth from within there.
there is a separate icon just for Bluetooth within preferences and that’s all that matters.

I'm having a similar issue with bluetooth/wifi

I have a ASUS TUF x570 Gaming Plus WiFi. I Got the wifi working with AirportItlwm and the bluetooth connects to my headphones so all seems to be working. BUT the firmware isn't loaded according to Hackintool - and with that airdrop and continuity aren't behaving well. I assume watch unlock would fail as well.

I tried to load the IntelBluetooth kexts but that kills the wifi AND the bluetooth. It also gives me some weird looping during boot (eventually does boot though) which I think may be related to the extension signing but I'm not sure.

Is there a secret to getting those kexts loaded? @AudioGod, do you mind sharing that EFI with me so I can see what extensions you have loaded and how? I attempted to force them but that failed horribly.

I would appreciate any guidance.

OC 0.6.9 for reference.

There’s not a lot you can do about that I’m afraid. The Intel kexts are far from perfect and AirDrop currently does not work yet.
If you want a perfectly working native solution then the best thing you can do is swap out the Intel wireless card for a BCM94360NG that you can pick up from AliExpress.

Because you are using a ASUS X570 TUF the EFI I sent sac23 isn’t right for your board as the ACPI won’t line up but If you take my X570-E EFI and disable the USBMap,kext or replace it with your own if you have one then that would work perfectly with your setup Or just use it as your comparison base.
You can grab it from here plus you will need to add your personal SMBIOS details and add the Intel wireless kexts to it and also disable the LucyEthernet Kext.

Is there a PCIe version of this? I have an extra M2 but not sure how I would manage the antenna.

So bluetooth will work but Airdrop won't if I use your plist as a template? I'm a little confused between the two statements, sorry I'm dense today. I was aware you had a different board - comparison was what I was after - so thank you! I took a look and you're not doing anything special to inject those kexts. :(

I'm using an iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS. I see you're using MacPro7,1. Does this matter or will it not get me any farther?

Thanks again.
